Research Pavilion: Choreographic

Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - 10:00 to Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - 19:00
Sala del Camino, Venice
Research Pavilion

A two-day research event consisting of talks, discussions, workshops and performances / Valand Academy in collaboration with GradCAM, Dublin and the Department of Art, Goldsmiths.

CHOREOGRAPHIC aims to test, interrogate and animate the valence of choreographic registers for artistic and cultural work within contemporary socialities. If we understand the choreographic beyond its normative association with dance as a set of language possibilities, procedural matrices and production protocols, how are its competencies to be understood in a post-skill environment?

The emergence of dramaturgy as a professional category within institutional curating attests to a new interest in the choreographic as work, as much as the interest in and circulation of dance and related forms under the conditions of museum displays and collection protocols. The largely consensual inscription of the choreographic into the broader milieu of artistic labour and commodities is one key perspective for this proposal; debates around practice- based research formats within HE institutions and their material and discursive supports are another. Against these backdrops, the choreographic aims to test the extent to which languages of the choreographic (discursive as well as performed) afford us the possibility to re-visit habituated languages of curating, artistic production and display.
